Abstract: Aims: Studies I & II: To describe and evaluate postoperative deltoid-triceps protection of tendon elongation and long-term clinical follow-up after tenodesis to the IP joint of the thumb. Study III: To examine and explore the applicability of the Klein-Bell ADL Scale (KB Scale) in patients with cervical spinal cord injury in terms of daily activities and the association between basic ADL and upper extremity function. Method: Studies I & II data were collected retrospectively. Eleven patient... more
